Hello everyone, my name is Tim and I am one of the product specialists here at Spy Centre Security, thee Spy Gear Super Store. I’m here today to give you guys an idea of how to choose an Audio Recorder.

Picking the perfect Audio Recorder can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. We have all been on the internet and seen how many selections and options there are out there. How do you know which one is perfect? Well, that’s why I’m here. I’m going to go over some things to look out for as well as some tips you can use to narrow down your search.

The first thing you really need to pay attention to is battery life. Luckily with Audio Recorders that’s usually not an issue unless you need it to record for a very long time. However they are definitely not all created equal here. Just as an example, this audio recorder has a 10 hour continuous battery life where as this other one can be voice activated and can last up to 336 continuous hours and can even go to sleep for up to 150 days.

That leads me into the next section. Which is, Voice Activation. A Voice Activated Recorder only records when it hears a noise loud enough to trigger a recording. Voice Activation does more than save you time when listening back to the files by effectively only having recordings of interesting content instead of just that blank static noise that continuous audio recorders produce when nothing is being heard.

Depending on the recorder Voice Activation can directly tie into the battery life of the unit as well. What I mean by that is some recorders have the ability to sleep in between recordings. As an example if you have a recorder on voice activation and there isn’t any noise it will sleep until it hears a sound to wake it up. This can greatly increase your battery life, an audio recorder like this one can record up to 24 continuous hours but can be voice activated and sleep for up to 25 days, meaning if there is 1 hour of audio a day this recorder would have battery for up to 24 days… We sell many audio recorders that have this feature, you will see them marked with a “Stand By” battery as well as a continuous battery time under the product specifications.

In today’s market with the internet it’s hard to tell the difference between products and companies. You can have two seemingly identical items with completely different qualities. This happens because in China, where these things are all manufactured. There is one manufacturer of the case that sells to many different companies that all put their own guts, or components inside. This results in the same looking device with completely different performance. How do you combat against that? Well, it’s actually quite simple, I would never purchase one of these devices that doesn’t have a quality demonstration to compare. I would also never purchase something on amazon for $10 for the “seemingly” same device that is posted elsewhere for $100 or more. You really do get what you pay for.

Last but not least is Time & Date Stamping. What this does is allows you to track when recordings took place because the audio recorder will stamp the date and time the recording happened. This can be useful when sorting through large volumes of recordings, especially when you have extremely long battery lives on your recorder and you don’t check it frequently.

  • I’m looking for one that you can’t tell is a recording device at all by looking at it. The person I need to record WILL probably see it. So no lights or sounds or writing on it at all. It needs to look like an innocent pen or memory card.
    And it needs to be able to pick up a conversation while hidden in a bag. Like a backpack or a handbag.
    Something where I can put my keys with a key chain on it in their bag, and the person won’t know anything, but it will still pick up their conversation.
    Can you recommend one of your products?
